In past years focus of civil engineers was on design and construction of facilities, such as buildings, bridges and highways, water treatment plants and environmental facilities and tunnels. Today’s civil engineers not only design new facilities but also analyze the effects of deterioration on infrastructure elements, consider system interdependencies and evaluate the life-cycle impacts while also considering environmental and economic sustainability within the context of ever changing society. Civil engineers must be trained and are professionals who are equipped with in-depth knowledge of traditional, fundamental principles and new technologies to address the complex and interdisciplinary problems. The Department of Civil Engineering enjoys the association of highly competent academic professionals who are dedicated to develop well trained individuals who will have dexterity to handle the problems in the field with professional confidence.
The civil engineering program is designed to meet the criteria adopted by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan and the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) while considering the local industry needs and international practices. A Departmental Curriculum Committee periodically updates and reviews the curriculum in order to keep it in line with the future needs.
